Gameweek 16 Movers & Shakers

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp rang the changes in Gameweek 15 away at Sheffield Utd with the most notable moves being the dropping of Darwin Nunez (£7.7m) and Konstantinos Tsimikas (£4.9m) to the bench. However, they are both expected to return to the starting line-up in Gameweek 16 against Crystal Palace as Klopp refreshes his starting XI once again. This is likely to mean both Cody Gakpo (£7.2m) and Joe Gomez (£4.5m) being victims of rotation.

After suffering another defeat from a winning position against West Ham, Ange Postecoglou may look to shuffle his Spurs pack in Gameweek 16, with Richarlison (£6.6m) one such contender to potentially play from the start. This would possibly put Brennan Johnson (£5.8m) in danger of losing his starting place, although a potential injury to Heung-Min Son (£9.6m) could see Postecoglou change tactics, with a difficult fixture vs Newcastle on the horizon.

Will Leon Bailey (£5.5m) continue to keep his place in the Aston Villa team after two excellent performances, which included the winning goal last time out against Man City. Moussa Diaby (£6.7m) must be a contender to start following consecutive short cameos off the bench and the Villa players no doubt tired following a gruelling but hugely rewarding victory.

Pep Guardiola will surely ring the changes following that defeat at Villa Park and with Jack Grealish (£7.2m) back available plus Jeremy Doku (£6.7m) possibly returning from a knock, we should see a very different starting XI. Players such as Rico Lewis (£4.3m) and Manuel Akanji (£4.9m) may well be on the rotational chopping block.
